1. Chose Cozy Knit Sheath Dress • This gray is so perfect for a fall neutral. I love the bell sleeves on this. The bell sleeve is a such a cute statement and the asymmetrical hem is such a simple detail that makes a huge impact. Pair this with a pair of black heeled booties and a cute plaid vest and a newsboy hat. Add simple silver earrings and a long hanging necklace. This is a look to wear on a casual fall day or into the office. And for after hours, shed the vest and pin your hair back for evening drinks of apple cider and pumpkin beer.

So cute for dressing up on crisp fall days. Add some silver details with silver hoops and a stack of bracelets. A pair of sheer black tights and black over the knee boots complete this look.

How fun is this dress to flaunt around all fall? Pull one of the colors from the tassels and choose a boot of the same color. Like a pair of dark blue booties or gorgeous burgundy suede over the knee boots. I also love how they’ve styled it with this hat! I’ve been into hats recently and a wide brim one like this is perfect for fall. Add statement tassel earrings to finish off the look. Cuddle up in this dress for $24.00

4. Turtleneck Dress • Cozy turtlenecks are perfect for fall. Such a quintessential look combination. Looking at this dress on the screen, I’m already thinking about cuddling up with a cup of tea and an apple doughnut in front of the fire with a really good book. How picturesque is that scene? I’m about to go set that plan into motion. This sweater dress would be perfect with knee-high boots and thick boot socks.

I love the midi length of this dress—which makes it different from the others on this list. Perfect for a date night dinner on a cool autumn night. The turtleneck, as always, is probably my favorite part. Tuck a cute, gold collar necklace underneath this turtleneck for a pop of metallic color. A pair of gold hoops with your hair pulled back behind your ears. And style the dress the way they did with a knotted belt and finish the look with animal print mules.

I really love the gray here because it lends so well to layering and building an outfit around. It can take on other fall neutrals like creams and camels and bolder ones like burgundy and burnt sienna. You could even do some pattern mixing and add a bold floral blouse underneath, letting only the collar and cuffs peek out from the sweater. I’d pair this with a dark red vest and matching ankle booties. Add some bold gold jewelry like a long hanging necklace and statement earrings. Get stripey for $124.00

10. On A Boat Sweater Dress • Now this is the definition of a cozy sweater dress. Is there anything more quintessential when you think “sweater dress”? I love the thick knit and all the details on this dress. The loose sleeves that tighten at the wrists so you can push the sleeves right up and out of the way. I’m imagining wearing this on a crisp weekend spent at home watching Halloween movies or at an evening bonfire with friends. I’d wear a pair of black over the knee boots when leaving the house and thick wool socks when you aren’t. Love black but want more color options? This sweater dress also comes in fiesta (coral), jewel seas (gray), and when you can’t give up pink for fall, bright pink. Wear the season’s coziest sweater dress for $178.00

Let your shoes be the focal point with mules that make a statement, like animal print or bright white. Available in both regular and petite; as well as in gray. Be classic and cozy for $79.00

12. Contrast Collar Sweater Dress • I love Peter Pan collars! They instantly turn a dress from plain to cute. And this dress is no exception. How sweet would an outfit created around this dress be? I’m thinking a necklace that peeks out from beneath the collar for a pop of color. A red flannel tied around the waist and black combat boots to contrast the cuteness. A little rocker, a little fun, all fall style. Take this to all your haunted attractions—houses, movies, and hayrides—and look casual and cute but tough don’t mess with me. Build this fall look starting at $22.90

13. Chriselle Lim Sawyer Sweater Dress • This color is so beautiful aptly called dusty blue. I love the button details on the shoulder and the slight boat neck.
